The Art and Science of Mindfulness

Jun 27 - 29 Begins in 2 months
with Shauna Shapiro

Based on Dr. Shapiro’s book, The Art and Science of Mindfulness, the workshop offers meditative practices for all those interested in awakening their minds and opening their hearts. Drawing on Buddhist practices of mindfulness as well as revolutionary research in neuroscience, we explore the transformative effects of meditative practices. We will immerse ourselves in the practice of being fully present, re-training our minds and hearts toward pathways of greater joy, ease, and health.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
